    I'd plug them all in to be sure... they all go into the computer in some magical way to make things work.

    @MESO @DSRamsey13 @Tacospike

    it was the fuse!!! Thanks @DSRamsey13 for mentioning that. Rookie mistake on my part. I’m no electrician/mechanic by any means but I am a DIY’er when I can.
    Thanks guys for all the help and MESO for the quick reply. Now I just need to put it all back together.

    Awesome. Still would like to know why it blew in the first place though, maybe touched a wire while running it or?

    He started out saying he reconnected the battery.

    Only thing I can think of is I when I fed the wire thru the boot I dabbed a tiny bit of dish soap so it would be slippery. Maybe it got too wet? I don’t know I’m not electrically knowledgeable. Other than that I’m not sure I did anything to make it blow.

    That could be it. Maybe I reconnected the battery too soon.

    Yes. It’s the same exact thing as if I were selling it. Sometimes my dealers don’t list stuff right away, and by the time they do.. I’m out.

    Awesome, will order a set now! :D

    I meant to ask above... Has anyone hooked their puddle lights into either of these? I’m thinking the cab light rocker would make a lot of sense if it could work electrically.

    I haven’t seen any posts where someone has tapped into those switches but the V2 lights have a switch designed for it. That’s what I just got and installed. See posts above.

    Yes go back to post #4474 on page 224 user chiefjim said he was able to connect the puddle lights to the factory bed light switch. Not sure how he did it but I like the idea of connecting it there
